    Default Old Land Cruiser - Anyone near Mathatiele??

    Morning Guys

    Is there anyone in/near Mathatiele who I can bother to check out 2 old Land Cruisers for me please?? Just a quick look-over to just see what they look like.
    The one is a FJ55 (old station wagon, predecessor of the 60), the other a FJ 45 (Pickup).

    Thanks.

    Christo ja hulle is skaars, die een wat ek na kyk is daai 2 tone blou en wit met die rooi seats binne. Lyk maar rof op die pics. Blykbaar het hy papiere - dis die groot ding.
    Nice 4x4's, hulle het met die F uitgekom.

    As jy hom vir `n bargain kan kry vat hom. FJ45`s wat gehawend is gaan R100k plus. So ek dink die 55 kan dalk vir harde geld geswaai word selfs in die toestand wat hy is.

    Ja ek sal beslis na die 2 kyk.

    Roes is maar issue, obviously ook hoe kompleet die goed is.

    En Papiere.......wag nog vir die Tril om vir my copies te stuur, anders gaan ek nie verder moeite doen nie.

    Net omdat jy my n "Tril" genoem het, het ek besluit om altwee Cruisers verniet vir Grips te gee..............

    Petri, vra vir Dirk vir name van forum lede in die Kokstad area. Matatielle is net noord daarvan.
